These prawns with garlic butter and parsley really hit the spot.
What could be more satisfying than the delicious flavours of prawns, parsley, and garlic butter for a light and healthy lunch. They are moist yet crispy on the outside with a the perfect sauce to go with it. This simple recipe is super fast to make and very rewarding.
If you are using fresh prawns, clean them but leave the tails on. Soak them in a bowl of brined water (enough to cover the prawns) with 1 tablespoon salt* and cover. Keep in the fridge for 15 minutes to up to 24 hours in the fridge. Simply drain them before use (for the recipe, adjust the amount of salt you use accordingly if you are using this method). Towel dry the prawns before cooking.
Depending on the size of your skillet and prawns, you can cook them in two batches if your cannot fit them all in one layer.
The dish leaves a wonderful dipping sauce in the pan, which is the amount of olive oil and butter used to start with. Toss the prawns in it for a blow-your-socks-off flavour.
Serve with rice.
*the brined water should be salty as the sea.
